The news of 600 jobs moving from Canberra to Gosford was welcomed by the Central Coast Greens but not on the Gosford School site.
“We have seen this week stories about tourists bypassing the Central Coast, and the Federal Government spending money it can’t afford in order to build an office block in the wrong place for relocated jobs,” Central Coast Greens spokesperson, Ms Kate da Costa said.
Ms da Costa said the Central Coast Greens welcomed news of 600 jobs being relocated from Canberra to Gosford, but stand with the community against the building of an office block on the waterfront space once occupied by Gosford Public School.
“The Greens believe that community wishes for an arts and culture precinct have been disregarded by both state and federal government. “Yet again, Gosford will suffer from governments without vision. “Aiming low, boring office blocks and relocated jobs, not new ones, is yet again the order of the day.
